Hi,

this patch export ssb_watchdog_timer_set to allow to use it in a Linux watchdog driver.

Well, you need to be careful. The watchdog is also used for system reboot.
Make sure to disable the watchdog driver when the bcm47xx system code wants
to use it.

It shouldn't be a problem : the system code always disable irq before using watchdog to reboot/halt (unless I miss other watchdog usage).
